Even though the Taliban has captured almost the whole of Afghanistan, it is beginning to fear the Islamic State – Khorasan itself. A former US Defense Department official says ISIS-K wants to end the Taliban regime. Taking responsibility for the bombings at the Hamid Karzai International Airport in the capital Kabul is indicative of this. In this attack, along with Afghan civilians, many American soldiers have also lost their lives.
‘Government in the hands of ISIS’
Talking to Russia’s state media portal RT, Michael Maloof has said that ISIS was preparing for this in advance. He has said, ‘They want to tell the Taliban that even though they are running the government, the regime is in the hands of ISIS. The Taliban and ISIS are far from each other, they don’t like each other. ISIS is telling the Taliban that you are not running this country, we are running, or will soon.
‘Taliban and America together’
Michael says the Taliban is softer than ISIS. The Taliban need legitimacy. They need international funding. The US has stopped 10 billion dollars in aid to Afghanistan. ISIS is the common enemy for the Taliban and the US. The attack on Kabul airport can bring both of them together. Rick Sanchez on behalf of RT said that the war with the Taliban was going on for 20 years and after leaving the country, they are fighting another enemy together with it.
